Springfield Armory XD Compact

Description

The Springfield X-treme Duty Compact is a semi-automatic medium-frame pistol chambered in .45 ACP. The XD series is manufactured by HS Produkt in
Karlovac, Croatia, and was modeled after its HS2000, a standard issue
Croatian military and police service pistol introduced in the 1990s.
However, Springfield sells the XD series domestically and has expanded
the XD line to include a variety of calibers and sizes. And some more
than others, the XD .45 ACP has 19 different models that vary by size
and features.

The XD Compact comes with either a 4″ or 5″ barrel, just like the standard XD, but what makes it different is its grip is shortened by 0.75″. Otherwise features include a grip safety, meaning the gun can only be fired when the hand firmly depresses the safety located at the rear of the handle. The XD .45 series also includes a patented Ultra Safety Assurance trigger system, which guards against accidental discharge. The USA only allows the gun to be fired when direct rearward pressure is applied to the trigger, eliminating the possibility of an accidental discharge if the gun is dropped or bumped. The XD has a striker status indicator that protrudes from the rear of the steel slide when the striker mechanism is cocked. In addition, it has a loaded chamber indicator, which is a thin piece of metal that pops up when a round is in the chamber.
